Created by world-renown editors who have assembled a stellar team, a Who’s Who of pediatric and adult cardiologists, surgeons, and interventionalists who offer the reader pearls of wisdom based on daily practice in the cath lab, this practical guide discusses methods to overcoming complications in the interventional treatment of congenital and structural heart disease for invasive cardiologists in the pediatric and adult fields.
The advice of the text is practical, and full descriptions and illustrations are presented about current technology and how it has revolutionized the treatment of congenital and structural heart defects.
